..slip a sable under the tree, for me.
Well actually you can forget that. Can't think of anything I would like less than a sable.
But I do have a live and kicking wish list. It's pie in the sky stuff - well some of it is but you never know who's reading... (if anyone knows my husband and if there is a cat in hell's chance that he's going to get me an Apple watch, please oh please tell him it's this strap I would very much like).
And back to reality. Here we have the stuff of pipe dreams.
Apple Watch Hermes Stainless Steel Case with Etoupe Swift Leather Double Buckle Cuff
Slightly more of an acceptable ask are some cashmere goodies. And these from Black are the classics I would wear and wear and wear. In black. I have grey but I don't have black. So obviously I need black (*obviously* - I did say this was a wishlist).
Oversized Black Cashmere Knit Scarf from Black £115
Black Cashmere Slouch Beanie from Black £72
Then we come to fragrance. And I have a number which I am loving at the moment (which I will come back to another day) but my favourite, which I have mentioned before, is the Agua de Colonia Concentrada from Alvarez Gomez. Which is a super easy buy as it's really really reasonable. Verging on cheap. Only snag is that you have to order online. I fear a step too far for the husband (so I *may* have ordered this for myself already...). Actually you can get from Liberty (HINT HUSBAND as you can never have too much of this - don't even know why I'm saying that as he doesn't even read the blog. Pah).
Cheapest place to buy is from Look Fantastic as they have 15% off at the moment with the code GLOW.
Agua de Colonia from Alvarez Gomez £15.95 for 80ml pre discount
But I always like to have the 40ml little plastic bottle for my bag (and you can never have too many of these) and the best place I've found these online is from Amazon. Yes it does look like a gin miniature (slightly makes me love it all the more).
Agua de Colonia 40ml travel bottle from Amazon £5
Then there's the bath and shower gel which is amazing. Exactly the same fragrance for £11.50 again from Amazon.
Now I have tried the body lotion but annoyingly found the fragrance really different so I would go back to what I know and think that the Jo Malone grapefruit body lotion would go really well with the citrus scent of the shower gel and perfume.
Jo Malone London Grapefruit Body Lotion £38
And then as I can't decide on a handbag and this is total pie in the sky wishlist time, I'm going in big.
Ok so it *could* be a Chanel bag but randomly that's never really floated my boat (I know - go figure right?!). However. These have been on my wishlist forever. I have watched them go up and up in price and think I should have bought them years ago. They are perfection in a shoe.
Flats in lambskin beige and black from Chanel £475
Actually I say I can't decide on a bag but one I do definitely need is a night away bag. Something smaller than a suitcase but bigger than a handbag. A travel bag, is that what you call them? And I have hankered after the hush one since I did the packing video for them way back in the Spring.
Small overnight version.
hush Daisy Bag £159
Or the weekend version.
Cecile Weekend Bag £250
And whilst we're going bonkers with the list, I'm flinging in, no not a jumper but the ultimate home accessory - a Bella Freud cushion.
1970 Cushion from Bella Freud £150
Or two.... Dog Cushion £150
So there we have it. I genuinely don't care if I get nothing on the list at all - it was ridiculously fun to do (although I wouldn't complain if I got any of it!) and at the very least, has given me food for thought for my sales list (although I'm not entirely sure any of this will go into the sale - ya boo sucks).
Fear not - I have not forgotten handbags and will be definitely coming to those in the next day or two, packing, shopping, wrapping and entertaining two small boys not withstanding.
Today - I have been exceptionally busy and appear to have accomplished diddly squat.
Grey cashmere jumper dress - hush
Burgundy leather leggings - hush
Patchwork faux shearling coat - Topshop
Silver boots - Maje
Haworth bag - Village England
We did make it this afternoon to the cinema to see the new Star Wars movie which I was less than enthusiastic about seeing, I won't lie. The whole phenomenon has really passed me by - bar the original, I don't think I've ever seen one the entire way through without falling asleep.
But I have to say, Rogue One, I rather enjoyed. I would say it's Star Wars lite - principally as I understood it all, whereas normally I am ridiculously confused but that was fine by me.
Tomorrow, off to see Santa and then packing as we go away for a couple of days on Tuesday. And no. I still haven't done any wrapping and the Amazon boxes are starting to take over the study and the dining room. Am I the only person who doesn't order anything from Amazon at any other time during the year and then suddenly orders the entire website (perfume and tulle skirts included - yes they should be coming tomorrow, so I will report back) in the month of December?
Ok so share your wishlists - all ideas very welcome!
